A teenager in Australia has broken down while telling classmates that he fears his dad may have cancer, a powerful moment that was captured on video during the filming of a television show.
"Just my dad is having a bit of trouble," the unnamed year 10 student from a high school on Sydney's northern beaches says.
"He's a bit sick. We think he might have bowel cancer. It's just hard," the teen tells his class mates.
The discussion was being filmed for the ABC's Man Up series that examines the causes of male suicide, Nine News reports.
Another boy, feeling for his classmate, says in an emotionally-charged response: "I'm so sorry if I said anything to you man".
"I hope that you can be strong, I just feel so bad for you man," the boy says, breaking down.
Man Up series host Gus Worland is seen crying as he listens to the discussion from outside the classroom.
